11 Define FRICTION and SHEARING. 500 points – PreventionDefine FRICTION and SHEARING.PressureUlcerPrevention
12 500 pointsFRICTION – Skin rubbing over a surface, i.e. sheets SHEARING - When the skin sticks to a surface while the body is pulled/moved.
13 Eleanor M. Savko4/15/2017Double Jeopardy200 points – A & PWhat is the body’s first line of defense against infections/microorganisms?PressureUlcerPrevention
14 200 pointsDouble JeopardyTHE SKIN Intact skin keeps outside micro- organisms from entering the body.
15 What is another name for a pressure ulcer? 200 points – A & PWhat is another name for a pressure ulcer?PressureUlcerPrevention
16 Bed sore, decubitus ulcer 200 pointsBed sore, decubitus ulcer
17 300 points – A & PName 3 areas on the body where pressure ulcers are most likely to occur.PressureUlcerPrevention
18 300 pointsBony prominences: back of head, ears, shoulders, spine, hips, coccyx/sacrum, inner/outer ankles, heels, toes, sides of feet. Areas that rub: casts, prosthesis.
19 What are the first signs of a pressure ulcer? 400 points – A & PWhat are the first signs of a pressure ulcer?PressureUlcerPrevention
20 400 pointsPersistent area of redness or discoloration that does not disappear when pressure is relieved
21 500 points – A & PWhat is the difference between a stage II and a stage III pressure ulcer?PressureUlcerPrevention
22 500 pointsStage II – partial thickness skin loss,, superficial, presents as an abrasion, blister, or shallow crater Stage III – full thickness loss involving subcutaneous tissue, may extend down to, but not through, underlying fascia
23 100 points – Risk FactorsList 3 things that put a resident at risk for developing a pressure ulcer.PressureUlcerPrevention
24 100 points Certain medical diagnosis/meds Restraints Incontinence Weight lossObesityCognitive impairmentEdemaNewly admitted in past 2 weeksRestraintsIncontinenceImmobilityAcute illnessHistory of pressure ulcersPoor nutrition
25 Name 3 sources of moisture that can damage the skin. 200 points – Risk FactorsName 3 sources of moisture that can damage the skin.PressureUlcerPrevention
27 True or False All pressure ulcers are preventable. 300 points – Risk FactorsTrue or False All pressure ulcers are preventable.PressureUlcerPrevention
28 300 pointsFalse Most pressure ulcers indicate an inadequacy in basic care. However terminally ill residents can develop pressure ulcers even though care is appropriate.
29 400 points – Risk FactorsCognitive impairment and edema are both risk factors for developing pressure ulcers. Explain why.PressureUlcerPrevention
30 400 PointsThe cognitively impaired resident may not recognize pain, remember to change position, or be able to verbalize needs.Edema makes the skin more fragile and may indicate circulatory problems.
31 500 points – Risk FactorsA resident has a higher risk of developing a pressure ulcer within the first 2 weeks of admission to a NH. Explain why.PressureUlcerPrevention
32 500 points Change in health status Acute illness Immobility from hospital stayNH staff not familiar with the resident’s needs, wants, routine
33 Name 2 food sources of protein. 100 points - NutritionName 2 food sources of protein.PressureUlcerPrevention
35 200 points - NutritionTrue or False It is important to weigh a resident more often than monthly if they are at high risk or have actual skin breakdown.PressureUlcerPrevention
36 200 pointsTRUE Weekly or every other week is best. Nutritional intake and skin health are directly related to each other. Weight loss or excess weight gain can indicate presence of either a physical or nutritional problem.
37 300 points - NutritionWhich is more important in preventing or treating a pressure ulcer: nutrition or hydration?PressureUlcerPrevention
38 300 pointsBoth are equally important in skin health. You must have adequate protein and calorie intake as well as adequate fluids for pressure ulcers to heal.
39 400 points - NutritionWhen feeding a resident, which foods or fluids are most important, i.e. which ones do you start with or encourage most?PressureUlcerPreventionWhen feeding a resident which foods or fluids are most important i.e. which ones do you start with or encourage most?
40 400 pointsStart with resident preference but encourage protein sources, fortified foods, high calorie supplements.
41 500 points - NutritionTrue or False An obese resident and a very thin resident may both be at risk for developing a pressure ulcer.PressureUlcerPrevention
42 500 pointsTRUE Obesity or thinness does not equal good nutritional status. Either resident could be in poor nutritional health. You must look at the overall risk factors.
43 True or False Donut-type cushions help relieve/prevent pressure. 100 points – Positioning/RepositioningTrue or False Donut-type cushions help relieve/prevent pressure.PressureUlcerPrevention
44 100 pointsFALSE Actually they increase pressure and decrease blood flow. Do NOT use donut cushions.
45 200 points – Positioning/Repositioning How can you protect the heels from breaking down when a resident is in bed?PressureUlcerPrevention
46 200 pointsFloat heels by using a pillow under lower legs to raise heels off bed.Heel protectors and sheepskins help to reduce friction, but do not prevent pressure ulcers.
47 300 points – Positioning/Repositioning If a resident has a pressure ulcer, how do you properly position him on his side i.e. where do you place pillows and why?PressureUlcerPrevention
48 300 pointsPlace pillows behind the back, between knees and ankles/feet – keeping the body aligned. This adds padding to bony areas and decreases pressure on bony prominences. Avoid placing resident on the actual ulcer or problem area.
49 400 points – Positioning/Repositioning What is one way to organize a resident room to encourage independence and slight position changes?PressureUlcerPrevention
50 400 pointsPlace the overbed table within safe reach so the resident is encouraged to reach for personal items i.e. phone, comb, papers, water, etc. but not so far away that it increases their risk for falls.
51 What are the rules for frequency of repositioning in bed and chair? Eleanor M. Savko4/15/2017500 points – Positioning/RepositioningWhat are the rules for frequency of repositioning in bed and chair?PressureUlcerPrevention
52 500 points Position in bed must be changed at least every two hours. Eleanor M. Savko4/15/2017500 pointsPosition in bed must be changed atleast every two hours.If up in chair, reposition every hour.If alert, teach them to shift weight inchair every 15 minutes.All staff can help prompt/cueresidents to shift their position.
